Love God

God has an immense love for the world. He created us in His image, so that we could reciprocate His love in us. It all begins with God and His love. Our response to Him is to love Him above all else. 

Exodus 20: 1-6

And God spoke all these words:

2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

3 “You shall have no other gods before[a] me.

4 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

Love People

Loving others involves looking out for the best interest of those of whom you relate to. In today’s world, loving others is a difficult to do, because we are taught that we are to look out for our own best interest. We are a selfish people. That is the bottom line. That is why we are to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind, in order to align our love with His love so we can Love People with the Love of God. 

Matthew 22:37-40 

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
